Electronic Keypad Lock With Code
Not really. Half the owners are losing money every game that gets played, but they can make up for it with gains in other owned businesses and tax loss write offs. The best players don't care because they can make relatively good money overseas. It's the vast majority of mid to low level players that could loosen the log jam because they're in the toilet as far as earnings...they will start getting more and more squirrely as the days tick by. I'm actually surprised the owners just don't cancel the negotiations so they can use their cash to make some better investments while the months go by the wayside for the players.
Some good points were made above. I was under the assumption that this was a no lawyers move on the part of the NHL. Seperate all the secondary people and let the owners and players go at things directly with nobody else there. If there continues to be a level of representation in the room I think that does help even things out.
The idea of not all the owners wanting the same thing I think is an interesting question. What is it the majority of the owners (or players for that matter ) want? We have all heard the wants of the Bruins and the Wilds owners but that is a small number out of the group. I have to imagine that there are several in the room that would much rather end this and get back to playing then drag things out any further.

Whatever......just get it done before you lose total loss of the fans...cause that's were your money comes from.
After game one for the Kings to see the banner, I'm done.
